    Hi All,

    We have had our Bailey Approach for a year now, we used to caravan, but much prefer the motorhome. we just retired end of March and have been burning the miles touring Scotland and Northumberland, but having the time now to stay longer in places we like. We mostly wild now, and are really enjoying it. Just got back from the Far North and Orkney, and planning the next trip. Will maybe make the continent for this winter. Our dear old cocker spaniel loves the van, despite being creaky and stone deaf.

    Looks a great site, loads of info!
    Cheers

    Hi, another from the South West (of the mainland aka Scotland). I've done the four corners - Mull of Galloway, Berwick, John o' Groats, Cape Wrath this year. Very helpful and some very experienced folk on this site as well as some sharp humour (y)

    We intend to park Buffy in the car park opposite the castle - there are bus spaces so we will hope there is a space big enough for her. We'll have the cycles with us and may go for a ride along some of the cycle tracks. Look for two fat people on bikes - him in orange and me in pink!

    We are supposed to be meeting family but it is all up in the air at the moment. We'll go early-ish to get our ride underway. I love the beach at Bamburgh.

    If there are MHs parked ours has MHF stickers and if you look at the number plate you'll see why she is Buffy.
